We received a call the other night form our Pastor of our church saying he will be officially not with the church a week prior to our wedding. He is meeting with the board to see if they will still let him marry us as he doesn't think they will find a replacement that fast either.
Right now I am nervous as we have done the prep and decided on the style of service- this pastor is very relaxed and if we get someone new they could make the ceremony a traditional Lutheran which is up to 45 minutes to an hour.
When I was speaking to him we were told we had to pick a verse that represents us- my fh is going to as I am not really familiar with any of it. We also have to hand our vows into him a week prior for approval- which didn't know we needed to do!
I am so nervous that we will get some strict pastor who doesn't know us and hasn't gotten to know us and will do it their way. We won't find out for another week. We literally did all the counselling and attended church and got to know this pastor. It just would be meaningless to have a new person to do it.
Has anyone else had to deal with this before?
